  • Day 1

    The front plank is a foundational exercise for improving core strength and stability. By holding your body in a straight line from head to heels, you engage the muscles of the core, including the abdominals, obliques, and lower back. To perform a front plank, start by lying face down on the floor, then prop yourself up on your forearms and toes, keeping your body in a straight line and holding the position for 10 seconds. It's important to maintain proper form throughout the exercise, so focus on keeping your core muscles engaged and avoiding any sagging or lifting of the hips. Gradually increase the duration of the plank as your strength improves, aiming for 30 seconds, then 60 seconds, and beyond. Incorporating front planks into your regular workout routine can lead to improved posture, spinal stability, and overall core strength.

    The front plank is a foundational exercise that targets the core muscles, including the rectus abdominis, transverse abdominis, and obliques. By holding the plank position for just 15 seconds, you can engage these muscles to build strength and stability. To perform a front plank, start by getting into a push-up position with your hands directly beneath your shoulders and your body forming a straight line from head to heels. Engage your core, squeeze your glutes, and hold the position for the specified time, focusing on maintaining proper form and breathing steadily. By incorporating front planks into your workout routine, you can work towards a stronger and more stable core, which can benefit overall performance and reduce the risk of injury.

    The front plank is a foundational core exercise that targets the entire abdominal region, including the rectus abdominis, transverse abdominis, and obliques. By holding the plank position for a short amount of time, you can engage and strengthen your core muscles. This exercise is also effective for improving posture and stability. To perform the front plank, start by getting into a push-up position with your forearms on the ground. Ensure that your body forms a straight line from head to heels, and hold this position for the specified duration. When performing the front plank, focus on maintaining a neutral spine and avoiding any sagging or arching in the lower back. Engage your abdominal muscles and keep your glutes and thighs activated to provide stability throughout the exercise. Remember to breathe steadily and avoid holding your breath. As you progress, you can gradually increase the duration of the plank to further challenge your core strength and endurance.
